The department of mass communication, Cross River University of Technology, CRUTECH, has been thrown into mourning with the death last Tuesday, of Mr Mogu Vincent, a lecturer in the department.
It was learnt that the deceased, has been struggling with a chronic heart condition for the past seven years and needed to have done a transplant, but could not due to the huge financial involvement.
Our reporter who visited the department spoke with some students who expressed sad feelings over the death. Henry Mogu said” I was with him on Sunday. We discussed very well until he asked me to go home and do my assignment because I told him I had two assignments I must submit on Monday. The doctor had certified him okay and he was looking it, but to my surprise in class on Tuesday, his death was announced by one of our lecturers.
“Mr. Mogu has been struggling with a heart condition for close to seven years now, a problem that needed to be urgently taken care of medically, but with the financial involvement he could not afford to take care of the sickness.
“With his poor health, Mr. Mogu always struggled to get to school and lecture his students, until last month that it became serious that his family members had to rush him to the hospital.
Another student who gave his name as Morris said” Mr. Mogu, until his death, was fun to be with. His lectures were never boring because of the humour he adds to his teaching; so we loved his classes. He once invited us to his church during the church harvest service and it was one big service for those of us who attended. He will be missed.
Also, a student who gave his name as Samuel said “Mr. Mogu is a man full of life and love. I remember how he invigilated me in an exam and how he jokingly turned the supposed serious environment to a more relaxed place for some of us who were already tensed up.”
